Our offers are pretty impressive. The GizmoGrind evaluation tool decides the value of your phone or tablet and other toys by gathering tons of market data and a little AI magic. You can sell your device for more if you sell it yourself on Facebook Marketplace or Craigslist. In fact, we encourage it with our how-to guides. What GizmoGrind offers is a professional, safe and hands-off experience. We strive to bring your payout as close to or higher than what you'd get if you sold it yourself on popular classifieds sites.

  • Fast Payment
  • We've optimized the shipping and inspection process with speed in mind. It takes 3-4 business days from the moment you ship your phone to get your payment.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I trade-in multiple devices?

Yes, once you find one item you'd like to sell, you'll have the option to add it to your bag then add another Gizmo.

How do I prepare my Phone, tablet or MacBook for shipping?

Once you've completed your order with us, you'll receive an instant shipping label emailed to you. Use an appropriate box or padded envelope. A used box from an online order or unwanted product packaging will do. Next, use material to wrap the device so that its secure and is not bouncing around. Keep the edges from making contact with the walls of the box or padded envelope. Newspaper, bubble wrap or plastic bags work well.

What happens if You Have to Change My Quote?

If we find your device to be in a condition different than expected, or for any other reason that may cause a decrease in your offered quote, we will

1. Contact you with an updated quote before making any payment

2. Allow you the option to request your device returned to you at no cost and no questions asked. We also cover the return shipping.

Can I Sell a Carrier Locked Phone?

Yes. However, the price difference can be significant, depending on the provider. As the owner of the phone, it's easy and free to get your device unlocked by calling your cell phone provider. For iPhones, it's especially important. This is because your offer will be much lower if you sell it locked. In some cased up to $85 lower since it limits our options in finding a new loving home for it. For androids, the price difference is less significant. For Samsung smartphones, we've described a little known way to get it unlocked for free directly from Samsung here.

I'm Not happy with my Quote. Are there other places where I can sell my phone?

Yes. We offer higher prices than other trade-in or instant sell platforms. However, selling your iPhone or Android yourself on classified ads or eBay will get you a bit more. There are some downsides to using those platforms, but for some, it can be a pleasant experience. Here's our detailed how-to guide for selling your stuff on eBay and Kijiji. Kijiji is the Canadian version of craigslist but works the same way.

Can I trade in my phone in person to GizmoGrind?

At the moment, we only buy phones and other devices on our online platform in the united states. We have partnerships coming soon, so look out for that. 😉

Asides from purchasing phones, does GizmoGrind sell phones?

Not retail. Your precious tech will be placed in our global wholesale distribution streams. To get you paid the most and as fast as possible, we wholesale all our units.

If I send in My Smartphone, will it be responsibly recycled?

If deemed to have no value, we'll send it to electronic Valhalla, where it will be recycled and broken down to its raw elements. Those elements are used to make new stuff, and what can't be salvaged is responsibly disposed of. This is done by specialty, certified recycling partners.

Can I sell my Phone and other tech for Parts?

We don't buy devices that are "parts only" or irreparable. This includes motherboard related issues, bent frame or body, or if it does not turn on. For cracks, dings, dents or buttons that don't work, we'll take that. For iPhones, in most cases, it's still worth a pretty penny.

Can I sell my phone if it is still on a contract or Financed without a cleared balance?

In some cases, yes, send it in, and we'll let you know. We can always ship it back if it doesn't work out. It's important to note, it will reduce your final offer significantly.

If I Sell My Phone, does that mean I sell my phone number?

Keep your SIM card by ejecting it with a pin before shipping in your device. Insert it into any other device, and voila, your phone number is on that device. If you're at all concerned, give your provider a call to be sure.

How to Deactivate iCloud

Find My iPhone is on most Apple products that can help you locate your device if stolen or lost, however it can also interfere with activating the device by a new owner. As a result, the device is effectively rendered a dummy phone and will have no value. To speed up the process we kindly ask that you deactivate iCloud from your device following these steps:

Gizmo Grind

Go to "Settings" on your device's home screen.

Gizmo Grind

Go to "iCloud" in the Settings menu.

Gizmo Grind

If Find My iPhone is ON, tap the slider to turn it OFF. If you are asked to enter a password, enter your iCloud password and tap "Turn Off" to confirm.

If you've already shipped your device or you can't turn your phone on at all:

Sign in at http://www.icloud.com/ and click "Devices" at the top. Find the specific device we'll be expecting and click on that device, and then click the "X" to take it off your iCloud account.
